By Bertrand Russell
This study of the history of China, its social forces and tendencies and the character of its people, was originally published in 1922, following the author's return from a year as Professor of Philosophy at the University of Beijing. Although much has happened in the years that have intervened, the book still has a great value and interest for all who are concerned to understand China and her future amongst the major nations of the world.
A database of cultural relations between China and the West has been put together by the University of Zurich (Prof. Robert Gassmann, Andrea Riemenschnitter, Wolfgang Behr) and Harvard University (Prof. Peter Bol).
